In 2013 news stations reported the account of a young local man (known only as Ignacio) who was walking through Bustamante park in Santiago, Chile when something caught his eye.
Flying near the trees he described a black creature with large leathery wings and hooked claws, a beak filled with sharp teeth and a long tail. “It looked like a mix of Batman and Dracula” he said. Although witness accounts differ slightly when it comes to the description of the creature, others have reported seeing the same beasts, some referring to it as a human manta ray or "manta man".
Many speculate that the creature is nothing more than a large owl, flying fox or bat.
The locals who have witnessed it first hand, beg to differ.
